Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


Concerns specific to race have re-surfaced in a way that strategically makes a space useful for realistic discourse in education. By combining performance as culture and critical race theory together, an attempt is made to construct a theoretical framework through which ongoing issues related to multicultural education generally, and race specifically, may be re-visited in search of a dialogical, performative, caring community. This author characterizes major principles of ‘critical performance race theory,’ examines various notions of pedagogy associated with power, culture, and race, and reflects on a sense of fundamental, global humanness. Taken for granted notions about the racial supremacy of one’s own can be disrupted through the progressive development of critically self-reflective dispositions (cautious, courageous, critical, caring, and change).
